Perry will preach at the Universalist church Sunday at 10.45 a. m. Subject, uoomea to De savea. That Kind of a Bird. The other day a friend of Capt. Woodbury Kane knowing his fondness for Pres. Roosevelt, went up to him and said: 'Say, Capt. Kane, if you should hear the president singing 'I would I were a Bird," what sort of bird would you think he meant?" "Give it up," said the captain. "A stork," said his friend, and left him to meditate on race suicide. N. Y. Times. Some Kinds Are Too Expensive for ' Poor People. "I can't afford to be very economi cal," said the little woman, whimsical ly, the other day. "I have a good neigh bor who believes that every penny saved is a penny earned, and she looks her disapproval at me because I don't make over my own dresses and do buy my cakes. She does all those things herself and saves the money, and she makes me feel wasteful. Last year I tried to emulate her example, and I used up at least fifty dollars' worth of wife, mother, and family comfort ln trying to save twelve dollars' worth of sewing. Besides, there's the dress maker's and cakemaker's view of it to be taken into account for I suppose the 'neighbor side of the question ought to come in somewhere. . "It reminds me of some of the cook ing recipes which the newspapers travely publish. I read one only yes rday. It was called a nice way to use IP bits of cold mutton, but required fried cucumbers, thin pieces of boiled ham, several hard-boiled eggs, soup tock, Worcestershire sauce, and so many other things and so much time to prepare the dish that it would make very expensive mutton of it The or dinary housekeeper couldn't afford to save it at that price. There is a great deal of so-called economy that is too costly for poor people." Forward. WEST DOVER. W. F. Jones has been an the sick list the part week.

"Mamma," said a downtown father, "L noticed that our little gins teetn are giving out, and I believe it is the candy that's doing it, so I warn you to get no more of it for her." The next day the mother went out shopping, and, of course, couldn't help buying some candy for the child. When she reached home the little girl was given the candy and warned to tell her father nothing of it under pen alty of not getting a portion of it which had been put away. Papa and Uncle Frank were sitting at the supper table when the mother noticed that the little girl was several times about to tell, but was restrained by a severe look which her mother gave her. At last, however, the child burst out: "Uncle Frank, mamma bought me some candy today, but I ain't going to tell papa and after he goes to bed mamma is going to let me have some more." Philadelphia Press. State Road Commissioner Sanford Of fers Valuable Suggestions. State Road Commissioner J. O. San ford writes to the Londonderry Sifter a letter, on the subject of keeping our road sides clean, which may be read with profit by everybody ln the state Interested ln the subject of good roads. He says: In September I drove through nine towns in Windham county exam ining state road work and the condi tions of roads in general, and while I found the traveled portions of the roads ln good condition for the most part, the borders of the roads ln many cases, (mostly in the hilly towns) were sadly neglected and given up to growing bushes. I asked the road commission er: "Why do you neglect the road sides? Why don't you cut back the brush at least eight feet from the cen ter of the road as the law requires?" In every instance I received practically the same answer. "There is no money for the purpose, the people are press ing us for better roads and we are obliged to lay out all the money on the traveled portion." These replies raise the queries: Has the standard for good roads recently changed? Are the people demanding better roads than they were satisfied with but a few years ago? We believe this to be true and it may require ad ditional appropriation for this work, and we have urged selectmen to bring this matter before the people at next annual town meeting. The trouble is not confined to Windham county but Is general, complaints of the growing nuisance having come to me from per sons operating mall routes in various sections. It Is on the Increase where forests have been removed and new growth Is coming forward, or where a low grade of farming has allowed old pastures or worn out meadow land to run wild. ' Many suggestions are made for a state law that shall oblige owners of land to cut and destroy the road side brush. In our opinion a doubtful ex pedlent, although we are told New York state has such a law in force, Certain it is, that the matter is getting serious and must be met; either the brush must be cut back or some of the roads will have to be abandoned. When driving early in the day before the dew was gone my horse was wet and my clothing saturated with water from the overhanging boughs with which w came In contact. We often find the side ditches completely occupied growing bushes, the roots and herbage obstructing the water flow. This spongy mass together with the dense shade holds the water which Is eating nto, rotting and destroying the road. There Is little chance for water to es cape either by flow or evaporation. Good roads cannot be maintained un der such conditions. Drainage must be provided by good clean open side ditches where water can flow to a low er level, with sunlight and air to dry the surface. We have urged the road commission ers throughout the state in operations upon the roads, to have a regard for the natural attractions of the road sides. In cutting the saplings the white birches, those "Fairies of the Woods," where they can stand without detriment to the road should be left and trimmed, and the same with a few maples and other varieties, enough to invite the frisky squirrel or to afford resting places for companionable birds, There is Intrinsic value in road side beauty which should be respected by the road commissioners first and he should insist on others following his example and have law to enforce It if necessary. The old custom of using the road sides as dumping ground for ail sorts of trash should be forever aban doned. Whenever it is necessary to leave heavy material like rocks on the road sides it should be done in a man ner to appear orderly and attractive rather than repulsive. When loose stones are removed from the road they should not be thrown upon the borders of the road nor into the field, but placed in cart and taken to some place where they can be utilized in road building. When culverts or bridges are built or repaired the refuse waste should be put out of sight. Roads and brush will not go together they must be separate. For utility we will have well built roads with clean borders and good open ditches, the beauty line to begin on the margin of nature's garden, defined by the boundary line of the highway. FEELS THIRTY YEARS Or. Kennedy's New Medicine, Cal-cura Sol vent, Warmly Praised by Mrs. Chaffee. When Dr. David Kennedy, of Kennedy Bow, Kington, X. Y., said he regarded Cal-cura Solvent, bis new medicine for the Kidneys, Liver and Blood, as the Browning achievement of his life, he made ao mistake, as hundreds who have used it testify. Here is one letter, short and to the point i Rutland, Vt., August 5th, 1902. Dear Sin: I have never taken any medicine that did me so much good as Dr. Kennedy's latest medicine, Cal-cura Solvent.

We have been assured by various people that sulphur worn in the stock ings, or a small bag of it hung around the neck has been found to protect from colds and the grippe. Some years ago when the grippe was widely prevailing in Boston, we found that at Byams' match factory, where fifty girls and ten men were then em ployed, not one had the grippe. The bookkeeper employed there was the only one of a family of eleven who es caped the disease. Geo. T. Angell. Cold-Weather Hints. Don't wash the face in hot water In the daytime.

They tell a lovely story, in lands be yond the sea, How, when the King of Glory la? on His mother's knee. Before the prophet princes came, bring ing gifts ln hand. The dumb beasts felt the miracle men could not understand! The gentle, patient donkey, and the ox that trod the corn. Knelt down beside the manger, and knew that Christ was born, And so they say in Sweden, at twelve ' each Christmas night, The dumb beasts kneel to worship, and see the Christmas light!
